We have the ability to offer certification on the courses we run including ILM qualifications and Masters Level CATS points.

One day courses

Our one day courses are aimed at upskilling business professionals through exploring the latest thinking and practice in key areas for business success. All one day courses take place on a Wednesday and run from 9am to 5pm on campus.

Bespoke courses

We have expertise in running leadership development programmes that deliver discernible behavioural change to support individual, team and organisational goals. We draw upon the latest research and development methods, and work with you to build a programme tailored to the specific needs of your employees and your business, focussing on the issues that currently affect you and that may have an impact in the future.

By developing an understanding of the company’s vision and objectives and how collectively they can affect growth, we help to develop programmes that utilise managers and leaders their own capabilities in motivating, empowering and developing staff.

Typically, programmes will involve psychometric and 360 degree feedback, action learning and peer coaching to enable the application of learning back in the workplace.

We also deliver in a cross cultural and virtual context, providing blended solutions, established through the Developing Leadership Capability module of our online supported Global MBA and through working with clients worldwide.

“The Leadership Programme is helping us to create leaders of the future. The impact on our business has been significant. It has provided people with a framework to have the positive and the difficult conversations, helped to support behavioural change around responsibility and empowerment and improved the quality of decision making through coaching.”
